amominous, 20 May 2014ha ha are you kidding? in GSM Arena's review Xperia Z2 is inferior to most phones with the sam... moreNot true!
It has many advantages that put it right near the top.
Z2 is the sign that Sony is doing very well to catch up.
Only the S5 and maybe the S4 Zoom overtake it in camera.
It is among the few to have 3GB ram.
It's screen is a big upgrade over the first...Which was already a lot better than trolls claim. Even in sunlight. Though now is a little dimmer.
Timescape UI is a favorite among many. It's battery life is actually good. Partially for having a larger battery.
And IP58 water resistant.

Next year feb?! Still 801 ? It wont be the high end handset then.
DMI7, 20 May 2014>LG Again not htc this time
>Will be on sprint
WHYYYY??Because HTC devices look nice from the outside but are crappy from the inside.
Glue instead of screws, badly soldered boards etc...
They definitely took some lessons from Apple (with regards to external design). I guess a lot can be learned from opening up some Nokia devices. Just open up a Nokia 808PV. That device is beautifully designed. Easy to repair and still looks terrific. From a HW-point they knew how to build the good stuff. HTC's beauty is only skin-deep.
gk, 19 May 2014Sony has a bad hardware quality? WTF? dont care about the review... im talking from experiance... more"Sony has a bad hardware quality?"
Yes, it has. It started with the "joystick" on the K750i and is still around with the supposedly high-end camera's of high-end Xperia's, which are crap. Sony is good in inventing cool names for hot air but in 2014 that's about it for Sony.
"its all about reputation and publicity where Sony suck as well and Samsung has the uper hand."
Not quite. In the case of Samsung they manufacture so many devices that one just HAS to stick. And for their high-end devices, they do seem to take users wishes into account. Unlike Sony. A few examples. Removable batteries, SD-card slots and software upgrades (the SGS3 even had an upgrade to 4.3).
Not that I'm a big Samsung fan. Far for it. Samsung has no vision, no innovation only ridiculous gimmicks but at least they adhere to users wishes with regards to some basic features unlike "the others".
I'm stil convinced that if LG put an SD-card slot into the LG Optimus G2 it would have sold bucketloads (because apart from that it does look the part).

It's the best for you. But not the overall best.

Really?isnt available in all countries.
Sorry! Devices on Google Play is not available in your country yet.
We're working to bring devices to more countries as quickly as possible.
Please check back again soon.
and also Sony has Never release an Nexus device...since Google didnt get Sony for prime Android devices
This dont mean Sony is a bad company, but isnt that good either.
Sony has a bad hardware quality? WTF? dont care about the review... im talking from experiance in real life vs a Samsung fan friend vs HTC fan Vs LG fan (we're a very colorful gruop of friends:) ) best hardware by far from the rest, best camera sensors, best GPS chips etc.
I do agree Sony got left behind with old tech screens, hope the the Z2 with its IPS screen will be better, and offcourse sony's achilles heel, no extra "exiting" software stuff, very minimal software twiks, such as Samsung's eye scroller and such..., which i find very crapy, but i guess most of the ppl like.
at the end its all about reputation and publicity where Sony suck as well and Samsung has the uper hand.
still deasnt change the fact that in the last two years now (since i started to check), Sony owns the top 3 "Best devices By users" here in GSM arena, and a minimum of %50 of the top 10 devices from the same list... (right now its the lowest they got in the last two years, with only 5 devices out of 10) when spots 1,2,3,4 & 10 are Sony's btw 11,12,13 are Sonys as well...

waiting for it, but plz launch it with good battery backup and camera.
Well nothing exciting from Sony other than their own product.
Sony has never had the chance of an Nexus device or GPE device or anything else.
Besides Sony has some problems around their numbers.
There is no good news in Sony financial and some people even talk about a future bankrupcy.
LG is getting more and more attention, and for real LG G3 is cheaper and gets a nice kick to z2.
Anonymous, 19 May 2014sony is bad hardware quality, lg is way better Google know that!Lol, saying Sony (best built Android phone today) has bad hardware quality and then mentioning LG...
Jesus, but these kids today are stupid.

It's the best phone out right now, period. "Their hardware isn't stable." What does that even mean? They're using mostly the same internals as everyone else. You're full of crap.
LG is a half-assed Samsung knock-off. Even comparing them with Sony is doing a disservice to the Japanese. Sony is in a different league compared to LG, with their ugly plastic phones and horrible UI.
